Numerical analyses for pressure drop and heat transfer in the flow channels of a printed circuit heat exchanger have been performed numerically. Three-dimensional Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations have been solved in conjunction with the shear stress transport model as a turbulence closure. The numerical solutions are validated with the available experimental results of the reference shape. The effects of two design parameters, namely, the channel angle and the ellipse aspect ratio of the cold channel, on the heat transfer and the friction performance have been evaluated.
